International Light ILT1000 Light Meter Monitor
UV, VIS and IR data logging optometer
The most versatile UV, VIS and IR data logging optometer available on the market today. System configurations are based on the industry standard ILT1700 Research Radiometer/Photometer detectors, filter/optics and calibrations.
The ILT1000 was designed with OEM and custom configurations in mind and can easily accommodate most solid state detectors, bypass filters and a vast selection of input optics. Integrating one or more ILT1000’s into your system is easy.
The ILT1000 is capable of measuring 8 decades of light intensity (i.e. nW/cm2, W/cm2) and providing direct readout in W, W/cm², Lux, Fc, Lumens, cd/m², cd, W/sr, W/sr/cm² and more.
On board data storage allows continuous monitoring at customer specified sampling rates using the “set it and forget it” data logging functionality.
Applications include Camera/Phone flash photometry, Beacon/Exit-sign/Aerospace effective candela measurements, Audience scanning/laser light show exposure, Germicidal, Pharmaceutical/cosmetics, Semiconductor, Lithography, Process Monitoring, Curing, Plant Photobiology, Thin Film Deposition, Ribbon Clarity/Glass Production and Liquid Turbidity, and Transmission Measurements.

Low Light Level Measurement
Low Light Level detection and measurement requires the use of a PMT sensor and highly sensitive light meter capable of measuring very low current or voltage levels. ILT combines a Hamamatsu PMT, miniature power supply, filters and optics into a compact housing that allows measurements as low as nlux and fW/cm2 over the ranges of 250-780 nm
Audience Scanning & Laser Safety
Audience scanning immerses the audience with light in many shapes and sizes (laser beams, cones, fans, waves, sheets, etc) so that the laser light is actually touching people. It is a truly an immersive effect that allows people to virtually touch and interact with the light. Laser lighting can be shined directly at the audience, reflect off natural and artificial structures in the environment, or focused on the stage and performer. Regardless of the directionality of the display, there is a risk for over exposure to the human eye.
Endoscope & Fibre Optic Testing
Endoscope and other fibre optic illuminator lighting systems were previously considered difficult to trouble shoot in the field, and were commonly sent out to certified laboratories for evaluation, repair, replacement or service. In many cases expensive components were simply swapped out for new parts when test equipment was too costly or unavailable. ILT offers a selection of portable light measurement testing systems that allow easy measurement of fiber optic lighting systems including endoscopes, laparoscopes, cystoscopes, microscope illuminators, spot curing sources and more.
Germicidal and UV Disinfection
ILT offers germicidal radiometer systems for testing effective germicidal ultraviolet irradiance for most short wave UV ("UV-C") sources including ozone producing and non-ozone producing, low and medium pressure mercury lamps, xenon lamps and UV LEDs. ILT sensors come in many configurations for effective germicidal UV light measurements conforming to the IES Luckiesh and DIN standards. Filtered for narrow bands such as 254, 365, and 405 nm, and unfiltered sensors calibrated at peak wavelengths such as 254, 265 and 275 nm for testing narrow band sources.
Optical Radiation Hazard
International Light Technologies has designed a selection of systems to measure almost any Optical Radiation Hazard application as defined by ICNIRP, ACGIH and EU Directive 2006/25/EC. Sources emitting optical radiation are of paramount concern to hygienists, safety engineers, and public health officials, both from their beneficial effects and their potential as a hazard to health and safety.
Photodynamic Therapy involves the use of optical radiation in the cure of medical maladies. Phototherapy is defined as the treatment of medical, psychological, or cosmetic conditions by exposure to light. Photodynamic Therapy or PDT is a specialized type of phototherapy for the treatment of cancers and, like some phototherapy treatments, uses photosensitizers, but in a different way.
Photoresist is a light-sensitive chemical substance that is used to form a coating on a surface or substrate and is used to form patterns for industrial processing. This coating can then be exposed to a specific band of light, referred to as the photoresist’s action spectrum, to affect a desired change in the photoresist. This change causes the photoresist to either become soluble or insoluble to another chemical called the developer which will be washed over the photoresist.
International Light Technologies has developed a line of reliable, highly accurate light measurement systems capable of both research and development or clinical use and available to match the wide variety of light sources used in modern phototherapy treatments. ILT meters come with NIST traceable, ISO 17025 accredited calibrations in units of Watts, Lumens, Watt/cm2, lux and foot-candles as well as full spectrum analysis
ILT offers a full line of light measurement systems designed to test, quantify and monitor both natural and artificial light sources used in plant growth, photobiology, photomedicine, and UV photobiology studies. ILT systems cover the full range of optical radiation (UVB, UVA, VIS and NIR-Far Red) spectrum for measurement of PAR, PPF, PPFD, and RQE with direct readout in µmol/m2/sec. ILT Spectrometers are available to provide complete spectral analysis from UV-NIR in µmol/m2/sec/nm, as well as transmission and reflectance.
Solar Radiation Measurement
ILT offers specialised systems for testing Solar UVB with a billion-to-one VIS/IR rejection. This is critical for testing Solar UVB since nearly all of the sun's energy is in the longer wavelengths. Using the same radiometers included with the solar UVB system, different detectors, filters, optics and calibrations can be ordered for testing UVA, VIS, NIR and IR.
Curing a product with exposure to UV light, while fast and economical, requires careful control of the exposure process such as the spectral output of the light source, intensity levels, and exposure times of the products. International Light Technologies has developed a broad range of UV curing-specific light measurement systems to aid in the challenging task of defining and monitoring these critical process variables.
